General & Laparoscopic surgery

General surgery is a medical speciality concerned with the treatment of a wide range of surgical problems affecting practically any part of the body, including the gastrointestinal tract, abdomen, breast, skin, endocrine system, and vascular system. General surgeons are highly skilled medical practitioners who carry out a range of surgical operations, including laparoscopic surgery and other minimally invasive techniques.

Laparoscopic surgery, commonly referred to as minimally invasive surgery or keyhole surgery, is a type of surgery that makes small incisions and uses a specialised tool called a laparoscope to carry out procedures. In order to observe the patient's internal organs and perform the procedure using tiny surgical equipment, the surgeon puts the laparoscope into the patient's body through a tiny incision. Laparoscopic surgery is frequently employed in pelvic and abdominal procedures such hysterectomy, gallbladder removal, and appendectomy.

  • FAQs

    How is laparoscopic surgery different from open surgery?

    Laparoscopic surgery is less invasive than open surgery, and it involves smaller incisions and the use of a laparoscope to view the internal organs and perform the surgery with small surgical instruments. Open surgery, on the other hand, involves larger incisions and more extensive access to the surgical site.

    What are the benefits of laparoscopic surgery?

    The benefits of laparoscopic surgery include less pain, smaller scars, quicker recovery time, reduced risk of infection, and better visualization of the surgical site.

    How long does it take to recover from laparoscopic surgery?

    Recovery time from laparoscopic surgery can vary depending on the type of surgery and individual patient factors, but generally, it is faster than recovery from open surgery. Patients can usually return to normal activities within a few days to a few weeks after laparoscopic surgery.

    Is laparoscopic surgery safe?

    Laparoscopic surgery is generally considered safe, but as with any surgery, there are risks involved, including bleeding, infection, and injury to surrounding organs. However, the risks of laparoscopic surgery are generally lower than those associated with open surgery.
